  • Alan Gura and Robert McNamara on McDonald and More

    Last week in McDonald vs the City of Chicago, the US Supreme Court held that the right of an individual to possess firearms is protected by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, and therefore applies to the states. But this historic case was about more than gun rights.

    To learn more about this case, its historical implications, and how it affects all Americans, not just gun-owners, listen to this Heritage in Focus podcast featuring Alan Gura, lead counsel to plaintiff Otis McDonald, and Robert McNamara, attorney for the Institute for Justice.

    No gangster is going to say, ‘I’m not going to get a gun for my business because it’s illegal’
